All. Bets. Are. Off. That’s the case in the UK if you were planning on betting if Oasis was going to reunite in 2017. After a suspiciously large number of bets came in for Oasis to get back together, possibly coming from people close to the band, betting was suspended.
According to Betway’s Alan Alger said: “Our traders were put on red alert after a significant number of maximum stake bets at 5/4 for Oasis to reunite in 2017 were placed. It’s a niche market to bet on, so it was immediately flagged up and the decision to suspend any further betting on the band getting back together was taken. If the betting activity has come from sources ‘in the know’, then it would seem we could well be on for an Oasis reunion next year. We’ll now just have to wait and see, and I’m sure there will be millions of fans with their fingers crossed!”
At a screening of the new Oasis documentary Supersonic this week, Liam Gallagher said that his “bags are packed” for a reunion. But in reference to his brother Noel, Liam went on to say, “But there’ll be no cap in the hand and no banjo, you know what I mean? A little f******skinny, stringy dog outside his house going ‘please sir, I need a f****** band, mate”.
Are Oasis getting back together? I wouldn’t bet on it.
